EAGLES-GIANTS EARNS 14.0 OVERNIGHT RATING ON “SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL”
SNF Is No. 1 Show of Night and Leads NBC to Sunday Night Win
Philadelphia Leads Metered Markets With 29.7/43; New York is Fourth With 19.2/29
NEW YORK – November 21, 2011 – Sunday Night Football was the No. 1 broadcast in primetime last night and led NBC to another Sunday night win, according to overnight data released today by The Nielsen Company.
Last night’s game on NBC, in which the Eagles defeated the Giants 17-10, registered a 14.0 overnight rating and a 22 share, the eighth time this season that the overnight rating was 14.0 or higher. The rating is down from last year’s Week 11 game that featured the Eagles hosting the Giants (15.9/24). In that game, both teams entered at 6-3, tied for first place in the NFC East.
NBC NO. 1 ON SUNDAY NIGHT: Last night’s Sunday Night Football again led NBC to win the night among metered markets in primetime (7-11 p.m.) with a 10.8/17, topping the 8.7/13 for second-place CBS, which was boosted by an NFL overrun. NBC also beat ABC (6.8/10) by 59 percent and Fox (2.8/4) by 286 percent.
38 FOR 39: When the viewership is available tomorrow from Nielsen, Sunday Night Football is expected to be the most-watched primetime show on Sunday night. This will mark the 38th time in 39 primetime NFL games – dating back to Week 7 in 2009 – that NBC has defeated its competition (35 Sundays, two Thursdays and one Tuesday).
